Dental exams

 

During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact the patient’s oral health.

We will examine the patient’s mouth and look for signs of gum disease. Gum disease may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This allows us to determine how much gum tissue remains between each tooth. We will also be looking for signs of bleeding or inflammation.

To determine if there is any problem with the patient’s jaw, we will place an eye mirror on top and move it around. This will allow us to view the inside of their mouth. We want them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.

We will also take X-rays or radiographs for many different reasons, but one reason is to check for tooth decay at the very back of the mouth. This can cause pain if it’s not found early on. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.

 

Children’s dentist

 

Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental advises bringing your kid in for their first visit when they are 18 months old or younger so that we may ensure there are no overbite issues or structural problems. Because your child’s primary teeth might last a lifetime (if cared for and treated), we recommend bringing them in at least twice a year to ensure there aren’t any major issues.

Before our skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. They will be assisted in relaxing in one of our pleasant and comfortable treatment seats. After a basic exam, an x-ray will be taken.

After this, we will talk with you about your child’s dental health and give a recommendation on how to protect the teeth they have remaining.

Healthy habits should be established early to help your child’s smile stay strong and prevent problems later. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.

We love seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.

 

Teeth Cleaning

A dental hygienist is a professional who cleans teeth, scales and polishes patients’ teeth, and removes plaque and calculus.

Dental hygienists are in close contact with their patients. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.

We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions and disks. It is very important to remove all plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth before they can start scaling and polishing.

We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. Our ultrasonic cleaning equipment uses high-speed vibrations combined with a lubricating spray in order to gently remove any debris. You can also use handheld instruments like a curette and scaler to clean smaller pieces of plaque. For optimal dental health, a dental hygienist may recommend you return every six months for teeth cleaning.

To prevent gum disease, dentists need to clean the teeth of tartar or plaque. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire family.

 

Wisdom tooth extraction

 

Wisdom tooth extraction is the removal of one or several wisdom teeth. They are also known as permanent adult tooth. A wisdom tooth extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.

Some dentists and oral surgeons advocate wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth don’t currently cause issues as a method to avoid future difficulties. Regular checkups are important to detect potential problems and allow for x-rays.

A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:

  • Wisdom teeth that have been impacted

  • Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw

  • Stuck within jaw bone

  • Pain can become a problem

  • Periodontal disease may develop.

  • Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth

  • Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth

  • Interferes With Orthodontic Treatment

In most cases, patients are given a local painkiller to numb the area as well as a sedative that relaxes them to reduce any discomfort.

Oral sedation is sometimes recommended in cases of extreme anxiety.

If your wisdom teeth extraction is simple, you can drive home the same day. However, you will need someone to drive and stay with for 24 hours.

The day following wisdom tooth extraction you can return to work, but it is best to avoid strenuous activities for at least two to three additional days.

While many dental offices can remove wisdom teeth, there are some cases that require an oral surgeon to treat moderately impacted wisdom teeth. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.

Laser dentistry might be more convenient than traditional drills and other equipment.

There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers only to the teeth and soft tissue to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. The laser energy is rapidly absorbed by the water in the cells when it is applied to gums.

Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. Laser dentistry has existed for some time but was only recently applied to gum treatment.

Scientists have found that the highest absorption wavelengths of lasers vary for different tissues and applications. To determine which laser is best for a given job, the wavelengths can be measured in nm. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.

Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. Treatments of soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding because the laser stimulates clotting. In some cases, anesthesia may not even be required. The laser’s ability to reduce bacteria means that there are fewer chances of getting bacterial infection. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. The procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.

There are some downsides to soft-tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. Another factor to consider is that with hard tissue procedures, the laser is only applied to the tooth being worked on. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.

To find out if laser Dentistry is right for you call us today and schedule an appointment. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in Westfalls Village offering laser treatments.

 

Tooth White Fillings

These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.

Composite fillings are the current preferred filling material. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping off. Composite fillings have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.

White fillings are constructed of a high-strength composite resin that can be easily color-matched to your natural tooth, making it virtually undetectable. Composite tooth-colored dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold fillings. You are far less likely to have a composite filling fall out, which can be a problem with gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and virtually undetectable.

Composite tooth-colored tooth fillings stay bonded to the teeth they are placed into. Your oral health does not depend on the adhesive joining dissimilar materials. This allows composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type of fillings.

Tooth colored fillings can also be used to restore broken-down molars, which are susceptible to fracture because they lack the support that natural chewing forces provide to teeth located in the front of your mouth. Tooth colored fillings can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring chewing ability.

Ceramic materials can also be used to make tooth-colored fillings. This material has the same compressive strength as tooth enamel and is available in crowns. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.

Call Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental to see if you’re a good candidate for composite resin fillings. This is a modern filling that we offer in our Westfalls Village office.

 

Sedation dentistry

Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.

Minimal Sedation can be described as the lowest level of sedation. This ranges from almost unconscious to a state that is similar to being awake. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. The primary purpose of nitrous oxide is to reduce fear in the patient. To achieve this goal, a mask or facepiece similar to a clear plastic bag is used to administer it.

Moderate sedation is primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental treatment. It may be combined with Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas. However, this medication may be administered intravenously by drip in the arm or via injection.

Deep Sedation is a form of sedation where the patient is often unaware of what’s happening and must be monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation is usually used in trauma cases or for extensive surgical procedures.

Anaesthesia is the strongest form of dental sedation. It doesn’t allow the patient feel any pain and leaves them completely unaware. The patient is completely immobile and needs to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This method of sedation can be used to treat serious dental issues such as complicated or lengthy root canal surgery, large-scale extractions and complex oral surgery. This type of sedation is more intense than other forms and requires that you remain in the dental clinic while being monitored.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Westfalls Village area.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment, also known as a root canal, is a procedure that involves saving a diseased tooth by eradicating the infection and preventing further harm. When you have a toothache, the first thing people do is take painkillers. It doesn’t help. Long-term use of anti-inflammatory medications can cause kidney damage and may not address the root problem.

Root canal treatment removes the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.

Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. Dental x-rays can be used to identify the problem tooth.

We will clean the tooth, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during the first session. We’ll then fill the tooth with composite. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides endodontic treatment for patients living in and around Westfalls Village since years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. A crown is basically a cap used to cover a tooth to restore its size and strength. It also enhances its appearance.

Dental crowns are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be used. Crowns can be made from full ceramic, porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain depending on the needs.

Porcelain Crowns are used to cover damaged teeth or those that have had extensive restorations. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as cracks or chips. Patients looking for aesthetic restorations will often prefer porcelain crowns because they are more used to treat a damaged tooth than to strengthen it.

A dental crown will replace your old filling material and will allow your tooth to become stronger as it is now protected from future damage. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. Crowns can be used to repair or replace cosmetic teeth that are damaged or compromised by chips or cracks.

A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. It is very painless. Your dentist will inspect your mouth and make a crown. This can be worn within one week depending on the impressions we take. While your permanent crown is being made, you might be given a temporary one.

The dentist might recommend a bridge if a tooth is too damaged to be crowned. A bridge can help you replace missing or damaged teeth, correct facial structure, and improve your bite. There are many types. Most include crowns placed on either one or both sides of the missing tooth. Sometimes, there is also a “pontic” (false) between the anchoring tooth. These are also known as abutment and lateral teeth. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.

The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth are missing. Bridges can be placed after you’ve had your remaining teeth removed (such as during a dental implant procedure) or after you’ve lost teeth due to periodontal disease or injury.

 

Dental implants

A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is inserted into the jawbone and allowed to connect with the bone over a few months. The dental implant is a substitute for the root a missing tooth. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.

An attached dental implant to the jawbone looks like a natural tooth. It stands alone and is stable. “Osseointegration” is the integration of dental implants and jawbones.

Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.

Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.

Individuals who have lost or cannot maintain healthy oral hygiene due to missing or extracted teeth are best served by dental implants.



Many dentists near Westfalls Village offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.

PubMed.gov lists more than 220 brands of implant, from around 80 manufacturers. The implant materials vary, have different surface treatments, come in different forms, sizes and shapes. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound clinical scientific research. Implants are, in some parts of the world, manufactured and sold with no demonstration of adherence to any international standards.

At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available in modern implant technology. To find out if implant technology is right for you, give us a call.

 

Dentures

Based on the case, dentures can be partial or full and are generally more affordable than implants.

False teeth are also called dentures. They replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.

Healthy gums are necessary to hold dentures in place. Missing teeth may be replaced with a bridge, which is fixed in place. To replace missing teeth, dental implants or dentures may be used.

Different types of dentures include:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partial and full) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

* Overdentures that can be used with dental implants. [1]

 

Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective type of full denture.

It is created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.

The metal frame supports the wire clasps that hold the roof or palate in place.

Partial denture – A partial denture is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.

Partial dentures are held in place by clasps that attach to the remaining teeth.

It’s most commonly worn like an orthodontic retainer. You can also take it out when you are eating or at night.

Custom denture: A custom-made denture is one that is made using an impression of the upper or lower jaw and a special material.

It fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.

Snap-in dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.

Because they don’t require reline, they can be considered a “no prep” option to traditional dentures.

Your dentist will make the snap-in dental dentures in a lab. He or she will first make a plaster cast of your jawline and gums. After that, the denture is fitted inside your mouth.

Once you’ve learned how to insert and adjust the denture, you won’t have to return to the dentist to make adjustments.

Overdentures are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant support.

Usually, an implant-supported overdenture provides a more secure and stable fit than other types of partial denture because it rests on top of implants.

Implant-supported overdentures are made up of two parts. A metal frame snaps onto dental implant posts, and a replacement tooth (or teeth) attached to it.

Overdentures usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a premier provider of dentures for patients near Westfalls Village. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
